Last year’s UC Serves event saw more than 350 UC faculty and staff volunteers taking part in over 43 projects and logging more than 2,000 hours of collective community service hours. We hope YOU will plan on joining us for this year’s UC Serves event.

Please mark May 19 on your calendar for this year’s UC Serves, and It’s almost that time of year again—where UC faculty and staff come together for an alternative workday of community service and cross-unit relationship building. at the African American Cultural and Resource Center (60 W. Charlton St.), where you can stop by between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to pick up your registration packet, t-shirt, and meet your service team.

If you intend to participate, check with your supervisor about necessary adjustments to your work schedule. Also, please note that UC Serves is intended as a day to meet and work with new, friendly faces across the university. Since volunteer spaces are limited, registration will take place from March 6—April 24 on a first come, first-served basis; more details to come soon.
